Lot of creativity found as we shows everything to my teacher due to the planning and taking an initiative to do things in class that are required to us. At the school age from six to twelve years I learn to read and write down my name. The last stage is the stage five is when becoming adolescent as I experience now. I have been go through a lot of changes at this very period and peer pressure is one of the most distractive matter that I want to get out of
My instructor Jennifer Jackson said this time “ Bravo! This is one of the strongest revisions I’ve seen yet.” This essay gave me so much confidence and made me feel I can actually write something interesting. Also, I sent my paper to The Writing Center, after I submitted my paper to my instructor to see any other mistakes I could have to improve my writing skills. I received a very good feedback from them after three or four days of submitting my paper, they said, “ my paper was pretty good. I needed to work on some minor mistakes such as spacing, omitting the work “that” when I did not need
Which could be it; his Ted Talk definitely falls under the entertainment category of the Technology, Entertainment and design categories. This seems to be intentional as his purpose is only seen through looking at the large picture of what he is trying to convey rather than looking at just the entertainment he provides. However there is more in it than that, the way he takes something as unpleasant and unwanted as spam emails and makes them fun highlights his whole purpose. He preys on the people that prey on the weak, and encourages us to do the same. With the benefit of having fun and no longer being spammed by these scammers as well as taking up their time from scamming people who might actually fall for their
Charles Vivian AP Language Mrs. Vanbrocklin Journal for EGR Chapter 1 Quote from the Story My Thoughts People are being persuaded to act, think, and do certain things through language or symbols. And that process, perhaps, at least in part, is what makes up the study of rhetoric. (pg 3) I thought for a first page of a first chapter that this had a really solid, basic definition of “rhetoric.” Consider this definition from The American Heritage Dictionary (pg 3) Again, I really like how they hit it off for beginners, explaining what rhetoric even is. I like that he has five or six common definitions of what it is on the page (variety of definitions makes it easier to understand if the definitions are simple). A discourse can be any speech,
If satire was thrown into the mix (which it is today), students who were uninterested before now might have interest in reading an article that involves political satirical jokes because it is more relatable. Political satire uses exaggeration in order to make a point about politics. Cartoons in magazines and newspapers today criticize recent actions of political figures in a comical way which can make it more enjoyable to the student to read because if its humor. Shows like “Saturday Night Live” mixes parody and satire at different times to keep their viewers entertained and interested. As people pick up a satirical book or watch a satirical movie hoping to be entertained, they end up thinking about the perspectives they never thought of before.
When I started here at the Non Commissioned Officer Academy I was aware that I had weaknesses like not being personable or picking the wrong times to try and work something out, but thru the Course 15 material and research I found five concepts that were important to me and how I could improve on them. I started with interpersonal communication and how I need to be more personable with everyone in my work center and really listen to what they have to say, so I can get to know them better as a person. To build further, I looked at the three elements of adaptability and how the fact that I have a strong dispositional flexibility which in turn will help me strengthen the other two by keeping that positive attitude. I then looked into cultural
He specifically uses jokes that make fun of himself and the general struggle with procrastination. Many techniques were used that caught the audience’s attention and kept them interested,like examples from Urban’s own life and comedy. These techniques also helped motivate and inspire greatness from the audience by showing that procrastination can have a range of real and negative effects which should make an audience want to work harder, and look at the bigger picture to realize we are working for a reason. I gained a greater understanding of how the brain works and how working hard with little to no procrastination can have a great effect on work habits and help achieve greater
Commonly, this genre of story writing would usually have a simpler vocabulary, as its primary purpose is to scare the reader, but by using a higher, more varied vocabulary, the text is now more informative and serious. I also wrote the story in first person, from the monster's perspective, influenced by my style model, because it makes the story seem more personal for the reader and allows them to feel like this ominous source is speaking in reference to them, which helped me achieve my primary purpose of entertaining/scaring the reader. My style model was written in first person and it was effective because it gave me a sense that I was the target of the protagonist's speech and the use of phrases, like 'I hope I see you tonight' also helps intensify that personal
Introduction: In the beginning there were five “super-motivated” students who were telling each other we are going to do the best job in this assignment, and suddenly there were two and then Three! That’s how it unfolded- My undoubtedly insightful journey of completing a rather simple task, which I thought at first, coming from a consulting background and done similar projects most of my time throughout last couple of years. But however the task given to us to complete as a team to evaluate and critique the issues occurred in the Organisational change process at the Brighter futures had me re-learn and understand at a deeper level, most of which I thought I knew (a regular occurring thinking error perhaps in me) and come out quite satisfied
In school taking a 1010 college class as a senior was okay because I had already had this teacher twice already, and I learned how to manage my procrastination so that was good. Taking basically all of the science classes was another kind of process to see what kind of things I liked and I would say that Anatomy and Physiology was my favorite class by far. Dissecting buffalo hearts and sheep eyes was the best part of that class and I will forever remember cutting into that baby pig Lavern. Trying a lot of different activities was really beneficial to me there were a lot of different lessons to be learned in each of those groups and sports. It helped round me out a little bit so I could see both the academic and the athletic sides of the school.
When I had first approached this project, my first task was to define each of the words for more clarity as to what they meant and how they related to each other. After defining them, I decided to categorize every word plus an additional word in order to have 4 groups that all contained 5 words each. I admit that I am more of a categorical person, and group and placing things together has always worked out better for me. This part was based on my opinion as I group together words with similar themes or meanings or by how easy they could connect to each other. Simultaneously, while categorizing the words together, I was planning out how to make my actual map look presentable.
Comedy Should Religion be a topic you can make a joke out of ? These issues can inspire strong feelings in many people. Jim Gaffigan does an excellent job poking fun at Religion, making this statement, “I would like to make everyone feel comfortable so i 'm going to talk about Jesus.” That joke definitely broke the ice, Jimmy uses set-ups, “act-outs,” and frequent “toppers.” to get his audience to laugh. Is religion a good topic to make fun of or would people get highly offended. Jimmy warms up the audience with his effective use of set-up.
Besides Felix being in this story, I really like the way you’re approaching this story. Nathanael 's alter ego makes me laugh because I always imagined him to be a smartass if he ever became a hero. And I’m glad someone has finally wrote him like that. As for Nino, I don’t know how I feel about him yet. I think I’ll have to wait and see what happens with him in the future.
I started to dig deeper before I would call the essay ready to turn in for the final draft. In the first paper, I really did not look for any errors, but I had over 35 errors in that paper. After the first essay I started to look a little before turning in my essay, but in essay two I still had over 30 errors. Making sure I notice these errors without needing the help of others is a great technique to learn for myself. I started asking for help from my professor Kitty Burroughs and she explained where I went wrong.
As a class assignment, we were to read five different rhetorical, persuasive, argumentative peices and examine their use of rhetoric to determine if it was an effective peice or not. We then chose one article to to write an essay on to discuss its rhetorical effectiveness. I had decided to write my essay on the article that I saw as the most effective as oppossed to the least. We brought our first drats into class, disscussed the articles, and had a peer editing/review session. We took into consider what our classmates said about our drafts and set to work developing our 3 page essay.
